Waiting On A Sign

Waiting On A Sign

Ben Harper

I didn't come here
Trying to find forgiveness
I didn't come here
Looking for a fix
I didn't come here
In hopes of seeing
How the unforsaken get their kicks

It's like a cry for help nobody hears
Close as you can get
But I'm still nowhere near
Now I'm just down here
Waiting on a sign
I'm running out of time
I'm here waiting on a sign

A mother is only happy as her saddest child
To learn to live without can take awhile
And it's a long way back to anywhere
And it's not too late, oh but it's getting there

Like a cry for help that nobody hears
Close as you can get
But I'm still nowhere near
I'm just here waiting on your sign
I'm running out of time
I'm here waiting, waiting on a sign

So you blow a veil of smoke
To protect yourself from the joke
Look around this room and say,
"Man, I don't belong here."
There's so many sides to the truth
But only one side to a fact
What will we do with what we can't take back?

Like a cry, like a cry for help
That nobody hears
Close as you can get but I'm still
Nowhere near

I'm just down here
Waiting on a sign
I'm running, I'm running out of time
I'm waiting on a sign
Oh I'm waiting on a sign
Got me here, I'm waiting on a sign
Just waiting on a sign
I'm waiting on a sign
Just waiting on a sign
